Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

Description

These bent neck gouges, also called "Maru Magari", are ideal for carving spoons and small bowls. Their iron hoop allows the user to strike them with a mallet and easily remove waste when making cuts, even in tight spaces.

The cutting edge of the blade is forged in the traditional manner with white paper steel and is backed with soft iron. These gouges feature a tough red oak handle reinforced with an iron ferrule.

For best results, Maru Magari gouges should be sharpened regularly with slip stones.

Edge broke the very first use

I was excited to buy these tools and chose them because they looked strong and well made. I was then pretty disappointed when the very first use saw the cutting edge chip and break. After resharpening the tool the edge is not yet as sharp as it could be (my fault) Perhaps I feel better about this when I have sharpened the cutting edge properly.

Hi Dale, We're sorry to hear your gouge is not performing to expectations. We've stocked this smith Kawasei-san's work for may years and the edges are generally extremely good. However, they are honed quite fine, which may be a contributing factor to this problem. The alternative is that the tempering on the blade may not be right, which would need to be corrected. If you feel that there is a fault with the blade, we would like to replace it so that you have the quality tool that you have paid for. In the event that we sell a tool that has a fault, we send it back to the smith in Japan for them to assess, inspect and learn from. Please write to info@japanesetools.com.au or call 0295273870 to let us know how you'd like to proceed.We'd like to express again our regret that your experience of our tools has fallen short of your expectations.Kind regards,The JTA Team
